Are YOU a Good Friend?? Take the Test...

Suzanne seems to be having a friend problem. We've all had one or two of those. But let's ask ourselves...what kind of friends are we?

Can you take the test?? Here's mine...

You Are a Good Friend Because You're Honest


Like it or not, your friends are going to hear the truth from you.
You know that the truth hurts, but living a life of lies is much worse.

So while you're definitely kind and supportive, you don't pull any punches with your friends.
Everyone knows where they stand with you. And what you like and dislike about them.

While some may be initially turned off by your honesty, your friends have come to consider it a virtue.
After all, in world of white lies and deceptive politeness, you can be counted on for honesty and integrity.

Your friends need you most when: They need good advice or an intelligent opinion

You really can't be friends with: Needy, emotional people

Your friendship quote: "True friendship can afford true knowledge. It does not depend on darkness and ignorance."

I think I am a good friend because I try to be honese-unless it is not worth hurting a friend's feelings. Such as: Yes that haircut is darling.

I am a good friend because I take pride and delight in my friends' successes. I also think I'm a good listener.

I think I'm a good friend as well. I go out of my way to help a friend, and hope they do the same for me. Love the quote: "True friendship can afford true knowledge. It does not depend on darkness and ignorance." So true!

Have a great Thanksgiving.

My daughter and family are getting on the plane as I write, and will be here by this afternoon. I can't wait.

That one was fun! It said I'm a good friend because I'm accepting and nonjudgmental. Absofreakinglutely.

While I wrote off one friend, I also wrote off one friend too many. I took a silence to mean more than it did.

Usually, though, I'm the friend who worries about how people are feeling. The Golden Rule definitely is my personal philosophy.

I'll post this one for my weekend post ;0) I am a good friend though!

You always find fun things!

Smiles,
Michele

Mrs. G.~ I don't doubt that you are a good friend at all. How nice that you take pride in your friends' successes though, that seems to be one I forget about. Good for you.

Renie~ You have a great Turkey Day too!! Enjoy your family, although you didn't need me to tell you to do that. :)

Kelly~ I'd have to say you seem pretty open minded to me...after reading many of your blogs.

Suzanne~ I know how painful it can be to have to let go of a friend. There have been a couple I've had to do that with, and I still think about them. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Michele~ I do not doubt one bit that you are a good friend to people. You have so much to offer and such a kind spirit. You keep up the good work!!
